From Zoom to Loom, to online and homeschooling, so much changed in just a couple of weeks at St. Jude School.
"When St. Jude School set out for Spring Break on March 6, we had no idea what the 'new normal' would be upon our return," officials said. "And yet in the course of 48 hours, our incredible school family pulled together to step up to the plate and provide the best in education under difficult circumstances.
"Grade levels met to plan lessons and for many to learn how to use new technologies. Tips and tricks were shared and frustrations were aired, but each and every teacher made a commitment to their students to help them through this crisis. Packets, instructions and books were set out and picked by each and every family.
"Parents acknowledged the realities and while caring for their families, trying to keep up with their own jobs and maintain their own health, they have stepped in to oversee the education of their children. There are so many unique things happening out there. We are truly a community of caring. We remind everyone to be easy on themselves.
"Today our teachers are conducting online video classes, using Zoom so that four-year-olds can enjoy their weekly show and tell, using Google Classroom and See Saw platforms. This new normal is brand new for most of us, and yet our Saint Jude School family is working together to forge ahead.
Remember, we are in this together and we are St. Jude School strong."
